As i sit here having another moment of total boredom but inspiration i am saddened by reality. For a long long time i have been a part of the bit-tech community and have seen some of the greatest mods ever and also seen the uprising of some of the greatest new modders in the world. Just a few minutes ago i read the thread posted by DAE_JA_VOO (a guy who also lives in south africa like me) and it really upset me. hes worked so hard at his mod (which is an absolute killer mod) and i have wanted to do my own mega mod. i have all the inspiration and a damn few hundred ideas of mods i know will be great if only i had a way of doing them. the problem here lies in the lack of tools and funding i have for these projects. i used 2 own a Fragram multi-tool (a fake dremel pretty much) but it never did quite cut it (scuse the pun...) most great mods come from people who are sponsored to make their mods. with the exception to those few who start off their modding careers with nothing and work up (i spose this is how everyone does it). but that aside, modding here in SA is damn expensive. just the tools alone can cost you an arm and a leg (and some times a little bit more). this thread isnt so much a place for me to rant and rave without reply. i just got really bored and was thinkin and thought i should start a discussion of sort. a place for all the people who know what im talking about when i say modding isnt easy, not only due to the difficulty of skills and such, but due to the lack of funding or tools or neccessities. thanx for reading my sad and mindless banter and ramblings on about a sad reality i live in ahahah. maybe some day along the line ill gain the capital and have my own chance to wow the world.
